Join Me For Another 10 Weeks! This is the first week of ten weeks starting October 22, 2012

Hi folks! I'm at it again. I'm going for another 20 pound loss in ten weeks. I've recently had another baby, a little girl, she is now five months old and I'm ready to drop some weight.

Today's challenge: staying on-calorie

Actual fitness:2 mile run, approximately 7 miles in bike riding

Note on no caffeine and no sweet-n-low: no stomach upset on yesterday's run, no headaches...but I need to get more sleep...geez Imagine that...I quit caffeine and I end up needing to modify my behavior to facilitate the transition because I am no longer using a drug. You'd think getting enough sleep wouldn't be THAT hard.

Note on picture: A friend gave me this yesterday and I saved it for my evening tea. It has a crunchy chocolate (dark) outer shell with a wafer-like inner layer with scrumptious creamy chocolate inside. This is a Ferrer Rondandt and only 55 calories. I guess the question here is...why the heck am I eating fun sized snickers when I could be eating this?

Note on weight loss: I re-loss the two pounds I gained. But, now I am thoroughly annoyed and re-determined to get this next pound lost and somehow get myself back on track with a pound a week average. That means no over-eating on Thanksgiving, this weekend or next weekend when we have guests coming into town. I'm tired of fooling around at this weight. I'm actually feeling a little ticked at spending the last two weeks gaining and losing and losing precious weight loss time. But for me, being ticked and disgruntled is a good thing for weight loss.

Oh. Happy Friday!!!
